What is the difference between NLGI 0,1 and 2?
The numerical value after “NLGI” refers to grease thickness. On this scale, the higher the number, the thicker the grease. The most common grade for grease gun applications is NLGI 2. Centralized systems require a thinner grease such as NLGI 0 or 1. Note that NLGI 0 grade greases are too thin to be packaged in tubes.
- Is it possible to mix greases, for example a customer is using a lithium thickened mineral oil NLGI 2 grease and would like to re-lubricate using SKF SYSTEM 24 filled with LGWA 2 grease?
- Which CITGO grease has dual NLGI Certification and can be used as a high temperature wheel bearing grease (GC) and can also serve as a chassis lubricant (LB)?
- What does NLGI #2 mean?
